Holly Herndon Unveils 'Call' Microsite

Website featuring clips of tracks and visuals now online

A mysterious microsite appearing to promote a forthcoming project from San Francisco-based experimentalist and tQ favourite Holly Herndon has appeared online. Simply entitled 'Call', it's unclear whether it is related to an upcoming single, EP or album release, or an entirely different visual-based project. Check it out here.

The site features a number of surreal images, a couple of which can be checked out above and below, depicting keyboards, skies and altered cut-outs of Herndon herself, that, when scrolled over, play various gloomy soundscapes. Given the involvement of Brooklyn-based label Rvng Intl, with whom Herndon released debut album Movement in 2012 and subsequent EP Chorus earlier this year, it may be more likely that 'Call' is set to be more of a conventional music release. The site is credited to Herndon as well as Amsterdam-based design studio Metahaven and frequent collaborator Mathew Dryhurst, who she has previously worked with under the name K回IRO. Herndon will play The Rest Is Noise Festival in Amsterdam on September 19 and will follow that up with an exhibition residency, alongside Metahaven and Dryhurst (which could tell us more about 'Call'), at Wallriss, Fribourg from October 5 - November 1.
